Instagram Moves Disappearing Stories to Direct

If you can’t beat ’em, copy literally every feature they offer and add it to your platform.



Instagram Introduces Stories!

As if there wasn’t enough of the same feature on each social network, Instagram is the latest to get into the crossover world with Stories, literally an exact copy of the popular Snapchat feature.


Instagram Adds Desktop Notifications

Desktop notifications!

After news of the upcoming change in algorithm that they announced last week, this is a nice change. Hopefully we’ll be one step closer to (finally) being able to post from the desktop. And working for an agency where I’m managing multiple Instagram accounts, desktop support would be #blessed.

This week, Instagram announced that they were beginning to test a new timeline for its users – one that uses an algorithm to determine the posts they think you might want to see the most, rather than just adding them to your timeline in chronological order like the current version is now.
